Quote: Originally Posted by pebblegrain he made it sound like he got into both UCLA and NYU? can't be that bad... well the hs stats needed to get into nyu/ucla are a lot different than the ones you need to get into places like columbia and berkeley (lol). applying as a sophomore transfer is pretty much like applying from high school because you haven't done much other than take a semester of freshman courses. op didn't have the grades/scores...

Except isn't it pretty fucking late to be trying to transfer in as a Junior? read the op. he said he didn't have great stats out of hs. you need to pull down A's for more than a semester if you want dartmouth, brown, and other schools of that caliber. additionally, ucla and cal only accept junior transfers.

with all the threads about traveling to places in europe and asia, i was surprised to find that there weren't any threads about korea, save for a few about teaching english. is korea just some shithole nobody wants to visit? anyway, i'm going there over christmas break with my gf and we need stuff to do. you guys have any recommendations?
Quote: Originally Posted by scientific also not sure what "SC" is but given above info you should consider whether you are a legacy loooool. sorry cp. you probably know this by now, but getting admitted to a t14 law school requires competitive grades and a high lsat. if you end up at berkeley, it will be harder to get good grades because there's less (no) grade inflation. admissions boards probably won't give a shit that your B work at cal...

The above test has me about top 40% lulz are the percentiles just for the group of people taking the test? like not adjusted somehow to try and represent a random sampling of the population. if you could even do something...
